This article offers a critique of South Africa's information industry and Thabo Mbeki's idea of an African Renaissance. The article uses a theoretical perspective that identifies channel, content and context, and attempts to show how powerful interest groups use the idea for different purposes, how choices are made in the information industry, and how some of the real opportunities that an African Renaissance offer risk being overlooked.
